Insomniac Sale Picks: Shorter Length Layering Tees

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Jennifer requested a few picks for shorter length layering tees, so here we go:


Old Navy Women’s Perfect Crew Tees in petites – was $8.50, now $7.50 -$6
Plus an additional 15% off with code ONSAVENOW

As with last night’s sale picks roundup, here’s a buying/styling tip: Most layering tees are EXTREMELY long in the body these days, and the easiest workaround is to purchase petite sizes. Very few brands are making shorter layering tees right now, so you’ll see some petite picks tonight.

I have a bunch of Old Navy tees and tops in petite sizes myself, and they’re the perfect length for wearing with skirts. These basic tees are an absolute bargain, a cotton/poly blend for smoothness, and a great bet for layering. Available in black, red, gray, purple, cobalt, green, and five different striped styles in sizes XS – XXL. Size availability and price vary by color.


Gloria Vanderbilt Petite Isabel Pocket T – was $28, now $9.99

If you’re looking for some pale pastels and a lower neckline, this petite pocket tee is right up your alley. This is a slub knit, which adds some texture and interest but also make the fabric a bit sheer, so great for layering but perhaps a bit tougher on its own. Available in pink, coral (has a white layer underneath, so not ideal), yellow, and pale blue in sizes S – XL.


Charter Club Petite Long-sleeve Crewneck Tee – was $19.98, now $6.99

Just in case a long-sleeved option might help (she types as she shivers in her drafty office), here’s a basic crewneck in petite sizes.It’s all cotton, so it should be nice and cozy, with simple styling that makes it ideal for layering. Available in purple, black, white, brown, and heather gray in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for shorter length layering tees:

  1. Boden – I’ve found Boden tees and knits to be shorter in length than most.
  2. Old Navy Petites – As I mentioned above, I’ve bought tees from this section myself so they’re an appropriate length for wearing with skirts. Talbots petites has great basics, too.
  3. And, of course, THRIFT STORES! Aside from petite versions, my shorter length tees and tanks are all thrifted. ( can help you locate stores near you.)
